    the first one looks good, the second one has one flaw, the weel rotates, like the bolts arent tight on the axle (If you get my point)

    yeah i don't think the wheel should rotate on that axis, just go up n down, what's the use of supsension otherwise. maybe wiggle just a little bit unless you go for some cartoon effect.

    A suspension system will allow the tire to roll, but not to that extream. If it didn't then the car would ride on the edge of the tire if you ran over a sidwalk curb, for example.

    hi, i like the design, but the shock is in the wrong possition, it should be more vertical, hence the wheel is doing all the movement, and not the arm, in the first clip the shock comes apart cos of that, but i do like the movement in the second clip, whats it for?????? Dave
